Our mission is to support better prediction, to approach uncertainty gracefully - and to keep us all honest, by keeping score.

Through media initiatives, education tools, and professional recognition awards, we'll take steps toward the post-partisan future we all deserve. Contact us today if you'd like to pitch in.


Understanding our future is perhaps the defining topic of our age. We must refine our ability to predict tomorrow's challenges to our climate, our democratic institutions, and our public health.

But it can be hard to know whom to trust. Today's media exposes us to countless ill-considered or alarmist predictions that, well, simply never pan out. As a result too many citizens are losing faith in leaders, in expertise, and in institutions' ability to safeguard our well-being.

It doesn't have to be that way. In virtually every field of knowledge prediction tools are improving. Forecasting games and communities are finding skilled predictors from all sectors of the public. We can now predict a wider array of events more accurately than ever.

The Future Institute seeks to help our culture embrace these new tools. The more we encourage prediction and accountability, the more we lay the foundations for a better public dialogue, and a better future as well.
